Fred Schneider of the B-52s will host Discoween, a  70s themed party on Friday, October 28, from 8:30 p.m. to midnight at Paris on Ponce. With a 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), this high-energy event will feature a complimentary full bar and 70s inspired snacks created by Dennis Dean Catering, photo booth, raffle, and live entertainment including Go-Go Ghoul dancers and the Hustle dance lessons.

Attendees can also strut their stuff and compete for iPads during the costume and dance contests judged by Mara Davis of dave fm, former Atlanta Falcon Coy Wire, Vincent Martinez of Fashionado, Fay Gold and reporter Justin Gray of WAGA Fox 5 Atlanta. Tickets are available at www.cci.org/atlanta for ages 21 and up; $60 in advance and $75 at the door.

Discoween is the brainchild of Atlanta-based philanthropist Cathleen Smith-Bresciani who recently founded the Violet Trust through CCI, a global nonprofit that provides highly-trained service dogs to those with disabilities. In addition to the Violet Trust, which devotes all its funds to sponsoring the training of CCI’s service dogs, Smith-Bresciani has become known for her fashionably fun and lively charitable fetes.
